Yesterday, protesters in San Francisco called on Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) to oppose the U.S.-South Korea FTA. The Korean Confederation of Trade Unions, San Francisco Labor Council, national AFL-CIO, and Oakland Institute all participated. Fog City Journal has the story and a bunch of photos (like the one you see below).
Young Koo Heo, Vice President of the Korean Confederation of Trade Unions, said that democratic rights and free-speech have been repressed, calling the FTA "unfair," and benefiting corporatate interests at the expense of workers. Heo said the FTA would cause unemployment rates to increase in both the US and South Korea.
